Well, leftwinger, it's all a matter of taste, and for me it's about the music he created on each guitar, not the gear itself. (We can agree to disagree.) I think you were lucky to see a lot of shows on the Travis Bean, he played some mighty stuff with it. Personal favs would be Alligator and Wolf, just not as big a fan of what came later on Tiger. That said, Jerry could make any guitar sound great - he could squeeze great notes on anything he touched.

Yes, the GD were into their gear, but I think it was all about the musical experience they could make with it... you'll find less discussion of gear here, and more about the music.
